DeadWing - Lazarus by NEOkeitaro DeadWing - Lazarus by NEOkeitaro
A new one, yeah !
Although I'm not quite satisfied with the result here, I got to say I'm very please to have been able to create the atmosphere I wanted, if you see the stock pictures you'll see it wasn't that easy.
Anyway, this is Lazarus, DeadWing's third song, very calm and slow, and also very sad. The album is a lot about going somewhere (but not here...) we don't really know about, like a radom travel. This is kind of the end of the first step, he leaves the land of the leaving to go... somewhere else. I didn't realise that clear before that this song was about a suicide, so I kind of try to make it clearer in my deviation.
The color scheme is for once very similar to the album, a bit greenish with some orange/burnt areas, and some grungy effect. I'm also very happy 'cause I've managed to put the 'washed up moon through the fog" (beginning of the song, for the ones who don't know it) and for me the valley below was some kind of metaphore which I simply materialzed with the lake.
Anyway, thanks a lot for watching this, and now.... the stocks ! :D

This picture would definately not look out of place in Deadwing's album art. The mood you've set is spot on, well done!

compliments his work, yeah =)

...most of my inspiration is coming from Mr Hoile at the mo. All I need now is a bald head and a goatee =)

I'll be honest with you: the Arriving Somewhere picture was supposed to be a car crash ("did you imagine the final sound... the smashing windscreen of a car" or something like that). Thing is, my best friend and girlfriend had a terrible car accident at that moment, and, well... It kind of turned me off car crashes for a while. But she's better now, and I've been taking pictures to continue the series. It will come back soon, stay tuned !
And thanks for the support, overall, I am very glad that you use this as a wallpaper. I would like to make a wallpaper version, but I don't think the stock I used are enough, so it will probably stay that way :)
